JetBlue to Begin Nonstop Flights to New York City

Feb. 22, 2021

JetBlue announced it will launch nonstop flights between the Boise Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on July 2. The redeye service will allow passengers to depart Boise just before midnight and arrive in New York City at 6:30 a.m.

“With travelers looking for unique destinations where they can truly escape and enjoy the outdoors, Boise is an ideal destination to add to our route map this summer,” said Andrea Lusso vice president network planning, JetBlue. “At the same time, Boise service further diversifies JetBlue’s flying and introduces the only nonstop service between Idaho’s capital and our customer bases in the Northeast.”

JetBlue will use a 150-162 seat Airbus A320 aircraft, and is scheduled to operate four flights weekly on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. The summer seasonal flight is scheduled through September 6, 2021, however that schedule could be extended based upon the success of the route.

This will be the first time the Boise Airport has had nonstop service to a New York City airport. The route will become the Boise Airport’s longest flight, and furthest to the east.

“JetBlue is an established and well-respected company, we are thrilled to welcome the airline to Boise and build a strong partnership together,” said Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp. “Nonstop service to New York City is something our community has been asking for, and it has been a goal of mine for several years. I’m very optimistic that this route will be successful for JetBlue and our travelers.”

With the addition of JetBlue’s flight to JFK, the Boise Airport will have air service provided by eight commercial airlines to 23 nonstop destinations.
